Acoustic Back in My Life

I'll admit to having been swallowed up into the electronic music of the moment.
Love the beats, love to dance to it.
But I forgot about that human something that cannot be found in electronic music.
That soul. That emotion. The longing, even.
Sometimes I don't want to be so moved my music emotionally - there are times when i really can't listen to elliott smith without wanting to curl up.
But recently I think I realized that it is okay to curl up once in a while.
It can't all be dub beats and pop synths and breaks.
So - i'm going to that genre of music that is defined by the singer-songwriter (gasp.)
Here are two tracks that I can't seem to get out of my head.

Bon Iver- Skinny Love.
I had a moment in december when I drove home from east atlanta with this song on repeat. I had kindof forgotten about it, but rediscovered it recently, and now it's on heavy rotation.

Jessica Lea Mayfield - Kiss Me Again
This song is so soulful, and makes me miss having my guitar in berlin. We forgive it for being featured on the gossip girls soundtrack.
